SQL Backup failing with delayed Write Failed message.

Hi, I'm having trouble backing up 2 SQL 2000 Dbs to a network drive, I'm using the following

BACKUP DATABASE Database
TO DISK = '\\server\e\backups\Sql backups\database.bak';
   
GO

They start writing fine, but they seem to always fail with

"Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \Device\LanmanRedirector."

I can find reg edits and patches for other OS other than 2003 which I am using, the detination location is on a 2003 R2 Windows Storage Server.

Any help would be great.

as I understand, you saw http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=321733 ; still I would try at least the reg edit. XP is pretty much the same thing as server 2003.

II did have a look at that and in my 2003 server that setting is already applied, at least I am fairly sure it is.
